We danced our asses off last night!

Vince Camuto celebrated the holidays with an exclusive girls only dance party at The A List, hosted by all my severe girl crushes: Erin Foster, Nathalie Love, Kelly Oxford, and Sasha Spielberg. Guests mingled and danced to music by DJs Kitty Ca$h and Kidada Jones while previewing the latest Vince Camuto styles for the upcoming holiday and awards season. This was such a bevvy of goodness. The music was on point (I’m a DJ snob having been one for many years), our hosts were delightful, and the A List was LIT in every way from food to decor to gorgeous holiday atmosphere.

David Beckham has the Perfect Holiday Gift for Men!

Fellas, are you still searching for a great set of skincare products perfectly designed for the men that love to pamper themselves and look good doing it? Biotherm Homme has answered your prayers. This three-step skincare regime that every GQ-reading stylish man needs is Biotherm Homme’s Force Supreme Youth Architect Serum, Total Recharge Non-Stop Moisturizer, and the daily Cleansing Gel. These are the most effective secret weapons against aging and dull skin.

Force Supreme Youth Architect Serum stops multi-signs of aging and keeps your skin looking youthful throughout the day. Biotherm Homme developed a multitasking serum, specially designed for the adult man, to eliminate wrinkles. Taking advantage of the Biotherm expertise, Force Supreme Youth Architect Serum helps skin feel stronger and healthier. The formula with Algae extract, Life Plankton and Pro-Xylane, comes in a non-sticky cream texture that can be used everyday. Skin looks firmer and more even. Use this product every night and within a week, you will start to notice your skin (especially around those annoying frown lines) is noticeably firmer. The product has a rugged, outdoor woodsy scent to it that is manly but doesn’t irritate skin, and absorbs pretty quickly with no flaking or residue left behind. Biotherm Homme’s Force Supreme Youth Architect Serum is recommended by internationally known influencers such as David Beckham and fashion blogger, Mariano Di Vaio.

Total Recharge Non-Stop Moisturizer reverses fatigue and discoloration with this powerful double-duty moisturizer. Even after a sleepless night, this product allows your face to be re-energized and revitalized while your complexion is fresh and radiant. Day after day, the skin is softer and presents less signs of tiredness on the skin. Leave those sunglasses in the car and don’t worry about the typical “you look tired” from co-workers as this product reduces those unwanted dark circles under your eyes and also feels very refreshing and tingly. Total Recharge visibly wakens skin and gives a “4 hour extra sleep” effect.

Cleansing Gel for Normal Skin rids skin of impurities while respecting the skin’s surface. Preps face for shaving without leaving a greasy film on the skin. This product is necessary for all men as it thoroughly cleanses without drying out your face. Use this product while in the shower and follow with Force Supreme Youth Architect Serum and the Total Recharge Non-Stop Moisturizer for best results.

#BehindTheScenes of Biotherm Homme Thermal Plankton has been around for more than 3 billion years before dermatologists demonstrated its regenerating properties on the skin in 1930s. Two decades later, biologists managed to integrate it into skincare formulas and Biotherm was born. Guys got their own range of tailored skincare products in 1985 when they pioneered the concept because men’s skin is rougher, thicker and much less likely to get waxed.

Dudes! Like A Gentleman Barbershop now open in WeHo

December 5, 2016

Like A Gentleman is LA’s first high-end, men’s luxury barbershop catering to celebrity clientele and Hollywood’s elite. The far from traditional, modern day barber salon showcases custom-made décor and grooming services that allow any ordinary man to leave looking and feeling like a true gentleman. Clients sit in custom-rebuilt vintage barber chairs featuring button-tufted navy blue leather upholstery and chrome hardware for customers to be groomed and pampered in style. A one-of-a-kind, hand-carved and distressed wooden barber pole is also beautifully showcased in front of the shop. Additional features include a vintage gumball machine, and a “friends of ours” wall (a Mafia term meaning “he’s good”), which showcases a curated collection of brands produced by the partners’ comrades, friends and other local entrepreneurs. Furthermore, the restroom, also known as “Le Pissoir”, features flamingo-print wallpaper and a spa-like atmosphere allowing patrons to ‘freshen up’ with a wide array of well-appointed toiletries. All of these sophisticated elements help make Like A Gentleman Barbershop one of LA’s most attractive establishments – designed by Horse & Carriage Hospitality.

I had the honor of stopping into Like A Gentleman Barbershop and getting a pre-Thanksgiving haircut by celeb barber, Mikey Caputo. I NEVER get my haircut during a busy holiday week. I’m always the guy who shows up to the dinner looking like Gabe Kaplan in Welcome Back Kotter. But alas, I was lucky to find some time and show up for some turkey looking svelte this year. Very friendly atmosphere, amazing decor, the music was bumping – I loved the vibe these guys created with this place. I normally get my haircut close to where I live, simply out of convenience and typically not giving a shit, but this will certainly change. I actually looked good after this haircut. Usually, after I get a haircut, people will be like: “Hmm, what changed? You lost a chin?” Not this time. It was noticeable, people liked it and I actually felt cool for once in my life.

If you’re looking for a new go-to spot for your man-grooming needs, check this place out. They’re centrally located, the staff is seasoned and knowledgeable (not some kooks who can’t explain the product they just sprayed into your hair and eyeballs) and the atmosphere is warm and inviting, all down to the Miami-themed bathroom. Crocket and Tubbs would be happy to wash up in there after a cut and a warm shaving cream neck shave. Don’t let them beat you to it.

Velvet Hair!

dsc07614 dsc07621 dsc07625

The latest trend in hair color is what we call Velvet.

Think the deep tones of velvet with the light tones that velvet has when you brush it in the opposite direction. Hair will be mimicking the tones of velvet this holiday season. We will be seeing rich base tones mixed with lighter bits in the same tone. It’s subtle and delicious. Especially in California, because woman, although they want that rich tone, they still want to seem like their hair has seen the sun.  

You can achieve velvet hair by starting with almost any solid base color. Our model has a beautiful natural level 4 brunette hair to start. 

First, we do a full set of highlights using a low volume developer and thin weaving to break up the solidity of the base and add dimension. 

After which we do a toner, always starting at the roots, covering the first 2” before pulling through the ends, to keep some depth at the roots.

Process the toner until the color is just 1/2 -1 level lighter than the base color. This will give you the perfect velvet hair!

We will also be seeing the use of real velvet. I.E – Velvet hair bands, velvet hair ties, all mimicking the fabrics of the holidays, but in the hair!
